Lotus Elan

Twin Dellortos and Sprint Camshaft.

Before I post on ebay.

No point in holding on to these, sooner sell and spend the money on the car.
Matched pair of Dellorto 40 DHLA carbs.
Factory standard from a 1.6 ELAN +2 Big Valve.
Part of a box of spares that came with my car, although they belonged to another late model +2 the PO had since sold.
Clearly they were professionally reconditioned some years ago, as you can see, but removed after a few thousand miles for an upgrade to throttle bodies. Have sat on the shelf ever since, so sold for REBUILD only.
They look pretty much okay but in the interest of safety please don?t just bolt them on without taking them apart and checking them thoroughly! One top cover has been unscrewed. Recon kits aren?t expensive, and don?t hold me responsible for setting your prize on fire!

LOTUS TWIN CAM ?SPRINT? profile camshaft.
This looks to be in superb condition.
It is a re-profiled camshaft which I believe is to Sprint specification, but I?m not technical enough to verify this. I will measure it with a vernier if any wish to know the exact sizes and make sense of them.
It was part of a box of spares that came with a car years ago. The chap said he needed one big valve/sprint camshaft to replace a cracked one, but had to buy a pair. This has now sat on the shelf at least 8 years.

I?m not sure what these are worth, most carbs on fleabay are very tired looking and you don?t see cams.

Please PM me with any reasonable offer. Unlike ebay I trust you guys to be sensible!

Thanks.

Also, what do you mean by "upgrade to throttle bodies"?

Hi, sorry in UK. Must update my profile. The PO of these carbs swapped to a Jenvey injection system.
